This two day seminar will cover the following: Puppies! Socialization and development Beyond critical periods: Of course puppies have defined critical periods! Or do they? Learn where this information actually came from and be ready to gasp when you learn the facts. Walk away with cool neuroscience research about puppies and regain hope for those less than perfect puppies. Dominance and Social relationships between dogs and people: Sigh…the “D” word - really? Haven’t we already all agreed it doesn’t exist? Well……find out why appreciating what it is, (and what it is not), can inform a deeper understanding of social relationships between people and dogs which will help you advance your efforts in improving the welfare of dogs. Separation anxiety and attachment: Should we be focusing on the dog itself who has separation anxiety or should we be focusing on the nature of the relationship between the dog and the dogs’ humans? New insights into separation anxiety. Don’t miss the latest on this ground breaking research! Emotions: Moving beyond training to the idea of educating dogs! Why stimulus -response learning is not the whole picture and learn what Emotional Functional Analysis is. This is a cutting edge approach from across the pond! Impulsivity: Did you know that there are two kinds of impulsivity? Learn which form of impulsivity dogs grow out of and which ones they don’t from the leading scientist working in this area Psychopharmacology for trainers: Prozac, Paxil, Oh My! I’m not a doctor but I know I need to know some information about medications so I can be informed and help my clients! Learn what information you do need to know from a vet behaviorist who works closely with trainers. Chronic stress and pain: If you want to make efficient long lasting significant changes in a dog’s behavior, you have to look beyond the problem to its wider background and the stresses it faces in its daily life
